It's not a problem at all. They serve different roles; Walkers are support units and usually relatively cheap, often specialising towards ranged combat, while Monstrous Creatures are large melee bruisers designed to soak up and dish out lots of damage, but represent a significant points investment.

Except the fact that they usually were as powerful as "monsters" back in 2nd edition, and their ranged focus does little when most heavy weapons can kill them in a single shot.

Make the more expensive, I don't care. But I want to use walkers for something other than a paperweight. True durability and actual ranged potency, not just the veneer of an armor value and the same heavy weapons most infantry get.

Give me back the variable Melta Cannon that was both a heavy flamer and a blast marker that did 2D12 wounds each hit.

Well, not exactly that, but it'd be nice to have a reason to take a dreadnought over.. say.. another tactical squad.. or fuck, a minimum squad of sternguard with combi-meltas.

I guess a dreadnought is better at tying up units indefinitely if they don't have power fists? But they don't actually DO much.

Would be helpful if an infantry squad with a lascannon couldn't kill them in a single turn or a model with a power fist couldn't rip it open with ease. I would never take a dreadnought, they are simply too easy to kill and do too little damage. HP has little to do with them being weak when any squad with a 15 point upgrade can rip it in half in assault or shoot it and make it explodes in a single shooting phase. Walkers as a whole are obsolete, they are simply outclassed too much by MCs, and walkers should probably get a massive boost, or all be converted into MCs with the exception of scout vehicles like sentinels.

Prediction: Dreadnoughts will become MCs in the next SM codex judging by all of the walker type models that are MCs (dreadknight, riptide, that CSM thing).

You need an average of 12 Powerfist attacks to be reasonably sure of killing a Dreadnought in one go. Funnily enough, 12 Powerfist attacks will kill most things bar large infantry squads in one turn.

As for Lascannons, assuming it's a BS4 shooter and you can claim a cover save, you're looking at about 10-12 shots again to guarantee a kill. Your claims don't match the numbers.

They were made to look like skeletons. Skeletons usually don't have boobs in my limited experience. The only proper representation of femininity would be to make them shorter and give them wider hips (they already don't have protruding brows and their skulls are so stylized that they don't matter.)

However, the C'tan didn't give two shits about making them look right and most of the civilians were dragged to the conversion chambers against their will (new fluff not dark? nigga read about Warrriors, the sound they make when they die, and the Ghost Ark entry). They were made to be cannon fodder (by Necron standards) and the immortality they were granted was a necessity because they wouldn't be able to reproduce after being cyborgized.

From the artist:

"Yes, I know the correct term is "Lady." Calling her a "Necron Lady" was confusing, as people would assume it was just a Necron female. The idea behind this is that in the latest 40k edition, Necron Lords now have the liberty to redesign their own bodies based on their lingering memories or personal preferences."

Credible rumors state the Riptide's heavy burst cannon is 12 S6 AP4 Rending shots when the Nova reactor is turned on. Potentially with Skyfire. Plus two plasma rifles.

I need to change my pants.

Also it can jump 4D6" with Nova activation, so good luck to the GK giant baby carrier trying to catch it, which can't assault after teleporting.

He is clearly out of breath, but at least the adorned Tau stopped in his way.
Random Tau:"Sir, I'm sorry but we cannot take these Tau Noodles withe us. They waste to much space for theyr nutrution"
Commander Not'Incompetent:"Fine we will leave them here. It is not like anyone will take my ten year supply of Tau Noodles."
The Commander seems a little disappointed but carries on. As he reaches his chambers, he quickly locks the door and screams into a pillow only to and up sulking about him never getting what he wants. EVER.

Meanwhile in Space.
A Necron Lord, wearing a black pirate hat and cloak, taps a golden cane on the metallic floor of his ancient ship.
He seems to be observing the situation through a giant telescope, which seems like a mockery to the otherwordly technology in his possession.
(Let's call him Dave for that is what he calls himself)
Dave:"Willsburrow. would you look at this. Truely a remarkable turn of events."
A normal Necron, dressed like a butler with Tophat and moncle steps fore and inspects the scene to the telescope. He wonders why he may never die.
Willsburrow:"Astonishing, master. You have found this opponent in a state of weakness. Shall i prepare N'mekor to strike him down at once."
Dave:"No. I want you to teleport me down there once his ship has left, so I can steal his Tau Noodles. And who is this N'mekor."
Willsburrow:"I will take care of these matters as soon as I can. N'mekor is to you known as Shades, yet the last time I called him this way was not very pleasent. He destroyed my body and ordered a troop of warriors to destroy it again after reperations were made. This went on for two years. Did you not notice my absence."
Dave is staring through the telescope again.

Commander Not'Incompetent sits in his chair on the bridge.
Random Tau:"Sir, we are recieving a transmission from an unknown source"
Commander Not'Incompetent:"Play it. I can use a distraction, from my private problems"
If we were to look closely at the face of our friend, we would see him holding back tears.
On the screen appears the upper body of Dave, behind him boxes upon boxes of Tau Noodles. He is also eating some cooked ones, with a fork.
There is nothing else to see. There is no other sound than that of a Necron eating Tau Noodles.
As Dave finishes his Tau Noodles he stands up, graps a new box and starts prepairing them.
Three month later the amount of boxes has drastically shrunk in size. The hole time the transmission kept going. With no change to the rhythm.
Not'Incompetent knows that this torment will only end when all the boxes are gone. And he fears the day it will happen, for clearly, his new enemy knows no boundries.

Eh, don't know. I didn't realize it was a discussion about the Riptide, my mistake.

Even with Str 5 though, you will need a (rough) average of 9 hits against a unit of terminators to reliably score one casualty (after to wound rolls and saves). Meaning at BS 5, you'll still need an average of at least 10 to 11 shots to score 1 wound with a (non AP 1/2) weapon at Str 5.

Which weapon to pick? Is the best option still the melta one (S6 AP1 Assault d3 melta)?

That gives each suit 2d3 AP1 shots which get 6+2d6 armour penetration at 6" range, and so a unit of 3 stands a good chance of wrecking even AV14 (8 on 2d6 to glance, 9 to pen), and T5 means they don't get instagibbed by krak missiles.

>> No.23983438

To break it down:

Survivability:
T5, 2W, 3+ save. Thats about as survivable against small arms as a T5 terminator. Less than two Plague Marines. Against AP2 or 3 guns, its two marine bikers. IE: Its not bad, but not nearly enough to justify 75 points

Dakka:
2 burst cannons. For 75 points. You know what else bring S5 firepower? Firewarriors. Firewarriors are far from being good @10 points per, but 75 points buys you 7 of them. Thats... well, effective up to 30" instead of the 18 from burst cannons. And can rapidfire, being 14 shots when at close range.

THe only two guns worth a damn (Phased Ion and fusion cascade) add a awful lot of cost to a unit that is already very expensive. And keep it into the 24" range that small arms love, small arms that can easily take the suit out as pointed out in survivability.

You get cheaper more effective S5 firepower out of firewarriors.

Is this how they're supposed to be used?

move up quickly towards a weak enemy unit, and with a bunch of drones in the unit, have a burst cannon one shoot at the weak enemy unit and target lock your main weapon one at the main target.

Then charge into combat to avoid their counter fire, at the end of your opponents combat round, hope to hell you still have a drone left, (easy when you can make saves on who you want) and sacrifice them for your automatic hit and run, next turn shoot again.

That's how starved Tau are for tougher units. I know it doesn't compare to terminators, but it's frankly the best we can get. At current costs, an average crisis suit hovers around or above a stock terminator, but with BS3, T4 and a 3+, nowhere near the accuracy or survivability.

Which is why, amidst all the complaints about S8 broadsides and $85 riptides, most Tau players are hoping for tougher or cheaper crisis suits.
